by on October 11, 2011

Today is October 11th, better known as National Coming Out Day — the day when all excuses for “drunken” late night hook-ups, all half-hearted reasoning behind “accidental” brushes against the thigh and innumerable piles of carefully hidden porn come tumbling out of the closet. After all, it’s 2011 and being gay is okay. You can kind of get married — if you live in New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire or Washington D.C. — and you can openly serve in the military — as if you would either way — so what’s not to be proud of? And sure, being gay’s not all is cracked up to be — it really doesn’t get that much better — but it’s still better than living a lie that no one nor their mother is buying. So go head, Mary, wave that rainbow flag and blast your Lady Gaga ’cause lady you were born this gay.

Dust off that Virginia Woolf reader and pop in that well-worn copy of  The Hours you’ve been stashing under your toolbox as you get dressed in the latest in lesbian haute couture: plaid, man jeans, heaps of turquoise jewelry — gals love the turquoise, am I right, ladies? —  Dr. Martens and just to show that dykes can be funny too, an ironic T-shirt. Sure Katy Perry may have kissed a girl, but like everything else in her oeuvre, she faked it. But you know the score — probably for whatever sport is being played now — and you’re ready to explore your lady-loving future adorned in your rugged best.

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
